Welcome to Kotaku Off Topic. I see you've survived this ban-filled Wednesday. Please, won't you join us in some off-topic conversation? I promise the giant burger beast you see above won't be a bother.

He comes from one of my favorite random sites, the Japanese monster blog. I have a few dozen Tumblr favorites, deviantArt highlights and random image blogs that I can waste hours perusing. Share with us your favorite niche blogs, won't you?

If you'd rather take than give, enjoy these selected internet items.
